The Byrds’ “Turn! Turn! Turn” is the very rare radio hit based entirely on a passage of Scripture, in this case a passage from Ecclesiastes. While the Biblical writer goes on to say that all of it is meaningless, The Byrds stuck to the inspiring opening moments of the passage, creating a song that glorifies the joys and sorrows of life as one. It is simultaneously one of the most depth-filled and shallow songs on the entire list, but I dare you to note feeling something when you listen to it!
